Oil & Gas

Serving the oil and gas industry is a large part of our practice.  We provide tax compliance, tax planning, assurance services, and accounting services to several segments of the industries, including exploration and production companies, investment funds, direct investments in exploration and production, oilfield service companies, midstream companies and owners of significant nonoperating interests.  Fourteen of our fifteen management-level CPAs serve clients in these areas.  Members of our service team have extensive experience in structuring oil and gas transactions and entities.
